Sheryl Steele Sanibel Music Festival Board Member and Susan Schulte Bank of the Islands Assistant Manager

Bank of the Islands partners with Sanibel Music Festival to serve arts patrons.

Bank of the Islands will work with Sanibel Music Festival again this year to bring the bank’s signature genuine personal service to arts patrons. “Bank of the Islands is a perfect ticket sales partner,” said Sheryl Steele, Sanibel Music Festival board member and box office manager. “Both organizations strive to delight customers with their personal touch.”

“Sanibel Music Festival’s seven concerts are a beautifully curated classical series,” said Susan Schulte, Bank of the Islands Assistant Manager, holding brightly colored bunches of tickets. “We have the concert schedule posted and welcome all arts patrons to stop by the bank and see Page Stefanski at the concierge desk for in-person ticket purchases.”

Sanibel Music Festival is a volunteer organization focused on presenting chamber music, piano recital and vocal ensemble of the highest caliber every year in March. Tickets for the 2022 seven-concert series are on sale now at Bank of the Islands at 1699 Periwinkle Way, check and cash only. Concerts are held at the Congregational U.C.C., 2050 Periwinkle Way, across from Periwinkle Place, on Sanibel. Concerts are held at 7:30 pm on selected Tuesdays and Saturdays, with a matinee performance added this year on March 22 at 2:00 pm for the Opera Theater of Connecticut.

“We look forward to the March 2022 season marking our 35th Anniversary. The entire season celebrates outstanding, long-established talent,” said Sanibel Music Festival President, Jana Stone.

American Pianist, Jon Nakamatsu, Gold Medalist at the Tenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, opens on March 5, 2022. Members of the Julliard String Quartet plus piano follow,
founded in 1946 and hailed by Strings Magazine for “assertive, even intense musicality.” The internationally renowned nine-time Grammy award-winning Emerson String Quartet will close
the series.

Back by popular demand is the Opera Theater of Connecticut Singing Andrew Lloyd Webber, featuring the sold-out program that had been planned for the suspended 2020 season. The
powerful music of Jesus Christ Superstar, Cats, Evita, Phantom of the Opera, and more will be included with commentary from opera and musical theatre cognoscente Alan Mann.

In between, the series will showcase one amazing ensemble after another. These include American Chamber Players Piano Trio plus Flute, programmed by Miles Hoffman; the acclaimed
Boston Trio, launched with high praise at Tanglewood in 1997; and festival favorite Cliburn Silver Medalist pianist Ken Broberg, 2021 winner of the American Pianists Award.
